In today’s world, information is delivered through advanced technologies and is changing the way we interact with the physical world. Information is exchanged through a virtual world built on the framework of the internet, computers, and mobile technology. This changes the way we interact with the built world. How interconnected can virtual and physical worlds become and how does this relationship influence physical architecture and its context?
This design competition is an exploration into the relationship between an architectural design, the virtual world, and your chosen site. Investigate the influence of the virtual world blending with physical architecture. How does this process help solve some of the increasingly complex issues in our world today? How are the users and site influenced by this concept?
